Softball—Program Overview

During the 34-year history of softball at Colby, many outstanding women have taken the field to represent their alma mater in what is one of the great traditions of collegiate life --- athletic competition against other colleges and universities. One of these women, Patty Valavanis '80, led a distinguished career both academically and athletically at Colby and an award in her honor is given out when an exceptional candidate emerges. Many other Colby softball players have distinguished themselves both on and off the field, bringing great credit to Colby. Softball player Miki Starr '07 was the exceptional student athlete recognized with this award in 2007 and Tory Starr '09, Miki's sister, earned the honor in 2009.
